TODAY'S CONSIDERATIONS

 ANNOUNCEMENTS 

[Note: One eye surgery has been completed and a second is upcoming next Monday, so there will be some occasions when postings are not possible during the healing process, periods of rest, follow-up doctor appointments, etc.] 

1. [See the offer following this post for details on how you can watch a retreat on video which includes a detailed discussion of all seven of the steps on the path as used by Maharaj] 

2. Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. See the end of the post for the full meaning and implications of that. 

3. A new video ("Number Ten: Awakening Together Satsang, March 2018") has now been added in the far right column of this page, offering the opportunity to view a recent 2018 satsang session with Floyd being interviewed by Regina and Jacqueline of "The Awakening Together Group." 

WHEN THE MASSES ARE LIVING AS CONJOINED TWINS 

To review: 

The mind and personalities are conjoined twins, bringing unspeakable relative horrors when twins are conjoined or when a mind exists and is conjoined with personality identifications. 

Conjoined twins are identical twins joined in utero. Approximately half are stillborn, and a smaller fraction of pairs born alive have abnormalities incompatible with life. In the U.S., approximately 4.5% of all children will have fairly serious defects; more common are an assortment of sometimes-less-severe or even minor defects. Most bodies arrive in fairly normal condition, but that is only about the body. 

The greater defects will be added as hearsay is shared and minds begin to form. The resulting defect – or Ultimate sickness – begins to take hold as a result of environmental influences and parental influences and cultural influences all join forces to warp the minds of offspring and to begin filling those minds with an assortment of assigned, false personal identities. 

As a result, all persons will eventually suffer from the Sickness which is as debilitating as being conjoined with a twin because that is the case among the non-realized masses. 

Also earlier, this were offered for consideration: 

Maharaj: “I have no identity (Identity) at all.” And that worked just fine then and it will work just fine now. 

As was the same case with Maharaj, “teaching” of one sort or another has gone on here for forty-seven years. Also as with Maharaj, that included at times the teaching of dogma and at other times the teaching of spiritual principles. 

Also, having also been certified to teach psychology in all 50 of the U.S. states, that has happened to some degree but - just as was the case with Maharaj - the focus on the psychological roots of the Ultimate Sickness and humankind’s craziness has been an ever-increasing focal point since 1989. 

It was understood long ago that, when sharing pointers, one statement could be made but that an entirely different statement could seemingly be heard by seekers. Statements reached their ears, would be transmitted to their brains, and would then be totally altered by the mind part of their brains. 

Often there was a fine line between points offered vs. what was supposedly “understood”; in other instances - even more often - the post-mind-churning process resulted in a statement being turned around 180-degrees from what was said and intended. 

So when Maharaj said, “I have no identity at all,” some took that to mean he assumed no personal, relative identities but figured that he had most assuredly assumed “The Identity of The Supreme Self.” 

To remove that notion, he would later say that he had also “lost all interest in ‘the Self’.” Yet none of that suggested that he ignored "reality" and supposedly escaped from "reality" and into "Reality." While he noted that the world as misperceived by the masses existed only in the minds of persons, he never claimed that events in his relative existence were not really happening. 

As has been shared here many times over a span of many years, the summative statement of non-duality is “I AM THAT; I AM.” It is not just “I AM THAT.” The relative existence is for now. The IS-ness is for now. The AM-ness is for now. To deny that fact would have to involve ignorance at best and full-blown insanity at the more extreme point on the sanity / insanity continuum. 

Did “I have no identity at all” imply that Maharaj was suffering from a series of personality disorders including the Dissociative Personality Disorder (P.D.), the Detachment P.D., the Obsessive-Compulsive P.D., and / or levels of psychoses which robbed him of the ability to witness and understand and feel feelings regarding events happening in the relative existence? Of course not. 

One site by a supposedly Realized person offers the message that “Nothing is real.” Here, the invitation to that person would be . . . 

“In that case, please come with me to the brick wall on the far side of the house here. Now, step off fifteen steps away from the wall. Next, bend your back and lower your head so that your back is parallel with the ground and so that you are looking directly at the ground with the top of your head aimed at the brick wall. Now, begin running as fast as you can, building up as much speed as possible before your head strikes the wall so hard that you are tossed backwards and land unconscious on the ground. When you come to, I shall check back in and ask, ‘So is that brick wall real . . . or not'?” 

The non-dual point about real vs. unreal is not about “relative realities” vs. “Reality.” It is about a clear perspective vs. a distorted perspective. Look at the brick under an electron microscope and you will see a moving mass of subatomic particles. They look nothing like the appearance of the brick when perceived with the naked eye. The appearance is not real, but that energy / matter at the core of the brick is quite real. 

Among those who miss the actual intent of pointers, the disconnect leads to mental and emotional entrapment, allowing them to behave in ways that are based in ignorance and insanity and in personality disorders, even as they believe that their understanding and behavior is liberating them. 

They miss the whole deal, namely, that the process as offered by Maharaj at the end - and the process being offered here now – involves (according to him) “going back” or “reversing to the source in the opposite of the way you came in" in order to understand the way that the cycling of consciousness into manifestation and the cycling of consciousness out of manifestation actually happens. 

Then, one can realize – as Maharaj recommended – all that one is not and can eventually be restored to sanity and can be freed from all of the ignorant and insane effects of ignorant and insane programming, conditioning, etc. For far too many who claim to be “Fully Realized“ and who claim to be “The Supreme Self” or even “God,” they have moved out of the frying pan and into the fire, so to speak. 

To be continued.

Here, with those who are still driven to talk about "God," the "Son of God," the "Holy Spirit," "Buddha," "Krishna," etc., etc., etc., the invitation to them is to view those as verbs, not nouns. 

THE EXPLANATION 

If looked at as nouns, they point to illusions and are, therefore, a total waste of time to even discuss; if looked at as verbs which are resulting in certain sane but rare behaviors among humanity, then they are worthy of some attention during the relative existence. 

Meaning? There are members of certain groups who say things such as "My concept of God in the past was of a weak God, an absentee God, A Santa Claus-type God, a mean, punishing, vindictive God, etc. Today, I am in close contact with a loving and caring God whom I worship and praise and glorify and give thanks to." 

The reply to that usually goes like this: "If you are in contact with a God that wants to be worshipped and praised and glorified, then you're dealing with someone like yourself - a narcissist - and hanging out with narcissists will never bring an end to your narcissism (that narcissism evidenced by the fact that you think you are "godly"). 

Next, in the phrase 'loving and caring God,' any supposed God that truly had her or his act together would tell you that the totally irrelevant part of that phrase is 'God' and that the only part that is relevant is the "loving and caring" part. 

"That is, a non-narcissistic god / goddess would say, "I care not an iota about being worshipped and praised and glorified by you or anyone else. How arrogant and insecure and needy would I have to be to want that? Forget the man-made, dreamed up noun 'God' and focus on the 'God as a verb' understanding and then go forth and let loving and caring be verbs - not adjectives - and let them generate the act of love and the act of caring and let those actions manifest through you." 

Yeshu'a (Jesus) and Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis were spot on: 

"No one shall ever see 'the kingdom of heaven.' It is within" 

and 

"Heaven and earth shall fade away." 
 --Yeshu'a (Jesus) 

and

"Heaven and hell are not geographic places but are states of mind, nothing more than concepts dreamed up by men." 
 --Pope John Paul II 

"There is no hell." 
 --Pope Francis, the current pope 
[in an interview with journalist Eugenio Scalfari, 
a writer used by the Pope to issue off the record teachings 
which become a part of the Papal Magisterium]

Non-Duality Paperback Books on Amazon.com

Five Free eBooks

Compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr.,
the following eBooks are available without charge for you or for friends:

I.
"GOOD vs. EVIL?" or "IGNORANCE, STUPIDITY, and INSANITY?"

The content of this eBook deals with one of the most common but erroneous beliefs that the non-Realized masses cling to and which they will fight about (and even kill over), namely, that there is a planet-wide duel going on between “the forces of good and evil” in the universe.

Either (1) the ancient view is spot on: that the "ills of the planet" are rooted in evil people, in people not being religious enough or spiritual enough, and are caused solely by bad morality; or, (2) the "ills of the planet" are rooted in ignorance, stupidity and insanity and "being good" or "being moral" does not put an end to ignorance, does not eliminate stupidity, and does not treat insanity in any way.

II.
"THE VISION"

Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

“My thanks to you and Andy.” – Andrew “Mac” McMaster

“Thanks so much for the book! And, by the way, it is brilliant and the most effective pointing that you have done. It has served to help clear the remaining blockages.” – Stan Cross

“Greatly appreciate having “THE VISION” added to my Henderson resource library that is situated on the right side of my bed for easy access! Eternally grateful for what was received and what was given.” – Robert Rigby

“‘THE VISION’ is such a well-written, condensed version of the Nisarga Yoga approach to understanding and enjoying Reality that I feel it can serve as a must-read ‘meditation guide’ for all earnest seekers.” – Andy Gugar, Jr.

III.
"Sapolsky, Maharaj, and the Non-Dual Teachings"

Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky is an American neuroendocrinologist; a professor of biology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery at Stanford University; a researcher; an author; and a Research Associate at the National Museums of Kenya.

There is much that a non-dualist or Advaitin or Nisargan can relate to by comparing and contrasting what Sapolsky reveals about the way certain troops of baboons live in Africa with the way that humans abide all around the globe.

This 152-page eBook catalogues the common, non-dual message shared by Sapolsky and Maharaj and reveals the ways that Sapolsky’s scientific research supports the non-dual pointers offered by Maharaj.

IV.
Seeking

In “PART ONE” it will be seen that most persons on the planet are not seeking, and most will never seek, but for those who are seeking, most will face several obstacles:

In “PART TWO” of this book, it will be seen why many criticized Maharaj for “changing his message in his later talks.” It will be seen that the changes were not about changing the message per se as much as about changing his methodology as he experimented with one version of the Ultimate Medicine after another in order to try to find an effective means for addressing the Ultimate Sickness.

He tried a religious version of the Medicine, a Spiritual version of the Medicine, and finally settled on a version which addressed to Sickness at its core . . . at the mental and emotional level.

V.
"THE MOST DANGEROUS BELIEF OF ALL"

“Dangerous” is a term that can only apply during the relative existence, but of those who do commit suicide, for example, how many shoot themselves in the foot over and over until they “bleed out”? None. They shoot themselves in the head. Why? In order to try to stop the noise - to try to stop the chatter of a thousand monkeys – to stop the noisy mind which is the area that stores the ideas, notions, concepts, mind-stuff, etc. which drives them into the depths of insanity.

And what are those ideas, notions, concepts, etc. called, collectively? "Their beliefs." The irony? They are not their beliefs at all. They are the beliefs of “others” that were set in place via programming, conditioning, etc. and which persons then think are their own.

And what are those beliefs rooted in, and what reinforces those beliefs and convinces persons that they are sacred and worth fighting over and even sometimes worth dying for? Blind faith.

This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
